K.C.S.E Biology Q & A - MODEL 2016PP1QN019
Explain why it is not advisable to be in a poorly ventilated room with a burning charcoal stove.
Charcoal in limited supply of air produces carbon(ii) oxide, which combines with haemoglobin forming Carboxylhaemoglobin which is a stable compound and does not dissociate easily, reducing capacity of the haemoglobin to carry oxygen leading to suffocation hence death
